GNOD & Doran are onstage at 9pm...

"When I was young I wanted a hole in the ground to gape open and swallow me up... No, that's not it at all... When I was young I wanted a hole in the sky to gape open and swallow everyone and everything up until there was nothing left."

Marking the first in a series of music and spoken word collaborations happening all across England over the next 12 months, sublime psychonauts GNOD and elemental electronicists H.U.M. are collaborating with John Doran on a special performance in Salford next week.

Fat Out Til You Pass Out is presenting the night of heavy electronics and spoken word at The Eagle Inn, next Friday (28/11/14) with support from cult Italian electronic musicians Mai Mai Mai and Simon Wildfrid DJing.

The Quietus editor has a book (Jolly Lad) and a collaborative spoken word album (Hubris) coming out next year via Strange Attractor and The Quietus Phonographic Corporation, with the latter featuring musical talent from Manic Street Preachers, British Sea Power, Factory Floor, Grumbling Fur, East India Youth, Eccentronic Research Council, Arabrot, Perc, English Heretic and Teeth Of The Sea.

One of the acts Doran is very excited at having on the compilation is the Salford experimental psychedelic band, GNOD, who he has been a fan of for a long time. (And in fact once tried to join when in a heightened - or arguably lowered - state of consciousness. While barely able to speak, he did cite the example of Michael Moorcock and Hawkwind but would like the record to show that this was only because they had similar beards, waistlines and taste in linen suits.)

The editor is thrilled to be sharing the stage with H.U.M. from Bristol as well after having several of his fundamental dials set back to zero by them at this year's Supernormal Festival.

Doran's readings will include a short story written especially for the occasion about the punishment of Dapper Laughs, an excerpt from Jolly Lad and a ritual invocation of a terrible black hole in order to bring about the end of all things.

There is a late bar to cover the slim eventuality of the spell not being efficacious. It only costs a fiver to get in and, remember, you can't take it with you.
